I recommend learning how to execute a dumbbell power clean (from standing). This will get the weights from the ground to your shoulders. This explanation from CrossFit is excellent. Learning to heft weights around is good for your general athletic development. If you choose to then sit down, that's on you. Unless you're working in a room with a low ceiling ...

If you're trying to gain weight, I suggest you focus just on eating more. Lifting heavier weights, or the same weights for more reps, would help too. Calculating exactly how much more to eat might be nice, but the main thing is to eat a lot. But no, 2700 calories sounds relatively little for someone your size who works out and wants to get bigger. Eat, ...

The difficulty of renegade rows comes from your body resisting twisting on itself and falling on the ground when you pull one arm up. Rotation and contra-rotation of the body is controlled by latissimus dorsi, spinal erectors, external and internal obliques, lower abdomen and by pulling the opposing scapula the trapezius. Teres and rhomboids can help too. ...

Single-leg varieties of regular and Romanian dead-lifts are good choices. These are more than twice as difficult as the bilateral versions because they contain an element of instability that needs to be overcome. And as with all single-leg free-weight exercises, it also makes them provide better multilateral development. The squat can be replaced with ...

I'm not going to give you a program. Perspective If you frame the situation as aping a barbell program with dumbbells, you'll only lose. I understand that it's hard to give up on a good streak with any training modality, but you'll get better results if you approach each tool on its own terms. You won't be able to achieve maximal resistance in low-rep, ...

The number of variables does make this a difficult question to answer. However, perhaps the most important variable is frequency. If your training is regular and consistent—say, once or twice a week—and if you have no glaring deficiencies in your diet and recovery, you should reasonably be able to expect to be lifting 20 to 25 kilograms for the same number ...

For your current level of conditioning, there is scant need to concern yourself with the amount of protein that you are consuming, unless your diet is particularly restrictive. Most people in the industrialised world consume far more protein than they require, and the figures thrown around in body-building circles are greatly exaggerated and contrary to the ...

For incline dumbbell presses, I'll do sort of a 1-2 kick. Flick one dumbbell up and then the other. Throwing up the non-dominant hand side first. With the extra incline, you shouldn't have too much issue with the momentum. When going really heavy I'll have a spotter help me with the dumbbells. I'll kick it up and the spotter will have their hand under my ...

neutral grip is safer. but it focuses more on the anterior deltoid and reduces the effect on the medial deltoid. it is safer on shoulders, however. facing forward-this grip hits both anterior and medial head with some effect on rear. tough on shoulder joints arnold press-hits all 3 heads but main focus is on the anterior head due to the dumbbell being in ...
